A Message from Kareem


Kareem_Sitting_smMany of you know that last November I partnered with Novartis Oncology and went public with my diagnosis of Philadelphia chromosome-positive chronic myeloid leukemia (Ph+ CML).  Since then I have received an outpouring of support and want to thank you for your encouragement. Now I’m taking the next step to help educate the CML community.

As a CML patient advocate I know what it means to benefit from cancer research and awareness. That is why Novartis Oncology and I have partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk to create Team Kareem, a national team of the annual LLS Light The Night Walk event to raise money for cancer research.

Every four minutes another person is diagnosed with a blood cancer.  With this in mind I am calling on my friends to join Team Kareem and make a difference in the lives of people living with cancer. Cancer is the toughest competitor we’ll ever have to face – but we can do it. All we need is a strong team.

All across the country this fall, Team Kareem participants will walk with others in their community to support cancer patients.  Join Team Kareem and have a positive impact on the lives of all of us touched by cancer.

The ball’s in your court –visit www.lightthenight.org/TeamKareem and sign up for Team Kareem today.

In good health,
